Overview

Borah DualSport for JL Wrangler & Gladiator

AEV’s popular and versatile Borah DualSport Wheel is now available for the 2018+ JL Wrangler and Gladiator truck! As the name implies, this is not another one-size-fits all aftermarket wheel – it is specifically designed for the JL Wrangler, paying close attention to its unique offset, back spacing and center cap bore requirements. The Borah’s unique offset of +25mm, works perfectly with the JL Wrangler’s variety of fender flare styles and provides the optimal balance of tire clearance, scrub radius and handling.

The JL Borah wheel is available in a number of customizable configurations with either a fully-functional Beadlock Ring for running very low tire pressure off-road, a Protection Ring designed for street use as well as additional wheel protection off-road, or no ring for a simple, minimalist look. Both the Beadlock and Protection Rings are interchangeable, giving you the flexibility to run a Protection Ring on the street or upgrade to a functional Beadlock Ring for off-road use.

The JL Borah is available in either an Onyx, Satin Black or Galaxy Black painted finish. The optional Beadlock Ring and Protection ring are both available in a silver or onyx finish that can easily be painted for a truly customized appearance.

Off Road Use Only: The Borah wheel with the Beadlock Ring installed is DOT compliant but that does not necessarily mean that they are 50-state legal for street use. Check state and local restrictions on beadlock installation and use BEFORE ordering. Beadlock wheels must be properly installed and require routine maintenance. As a general policy, AEV recommends that beadlock wheels are used for off-road purposes only.

AEV Beadlock Tire Compatibility: Due to the inherent variances in bead thickness between different tire models/manufacturers, the Borah/Crestone wheel is not compatible with some tires. We have confirmed that the tires listed below are compatible with this wheel. Other tire brands and models may also work but AEV only recommends using the tires listed on this chart. Tires that are not listed on this chart may have a bead that is too thick for this wheel which can lead to wheel failure, vehicle damage and personal injury. AEV will be updating this list with additional tire manufacturers and models as we test them. Please contact the AEV Sales Team at (248) 926-0256 if you have any questions or concerns about tire compatibility before ordering. This advisory affects the Borah/Crestone wheel in the functional beadlock configuration only.

Made In: China. And for the record, we’re not happy about it. At AEV, we remain committed to American manufacturing, and we would much rather have our wheels manufactured in the US. But right now, you can’t get wheels made in the US at aftermarket volumes.

What happened? Most of the US wheel manufacturing used to be based in California. In the early nineties, China targeted the wheel industry as a strategic growth industry. They set up incentives for the construction of wheel manufacturing facilities, began offering export credits of 22% on wheels, and fully subsidized the cost of new tooling. US plants couldn’t compete. Most US manufacturers ended up selling their equipment to China, created partnerships with the Chinese plants, and became middle men importing wheels back to the US.

Today, the only cast wheel plants left in the US are for high volume OE wheel programs. So unfortunately, buying from China is a necessary evil of being in the aftermarket cast wheel business. We have made the effort to buy from a high quality Chinese plant. Our plant also produces OE wheels for Volkswagen, Audi, BMW and Harley Davidson, among others. Our supplier has Americans on the ground in China who oversee our programs for us, and we have been over to China to inspect and visit the plant.

When lower volume manufacturing becomes feasible again in the US, we will be first in line. Over the past 20 years, the Chinese government has stopped subsidizing tooling, has been phasing out the wheel export credits, and as of 2011 they finally eliminated the wheel credits. We hope that in time, US plants will be able to compete and we will start to see some volume move back to the US.
